Indo Tambangraya Megah [ITMG] Announces Final Dividend for 2021

"Larger Than Before, Not As Large As some Expected"

2021 Final Dividend Amount, Yield, and Schedule

In today’s shareholder meeting for Indo Tambangraya Megah [ITMG], the company has announced that the final dividend for fiscal year 2021 will equal IDR 4,258 per share.

This amount includes the interim dividend of IDR 1,218 per share already issued to shareholders on November 24th, 2021. Accordingly, the remainder amount to be paid out equals IDR 3,040 per share. 

Currently, the total dividend of IDR 4,258 per share represents a 15.32% yield at the going market price of IDR 27,800 per share. The yield for the remaining dividend of IDR 3,040 per share is 10.94%, much higher than the average dividend for the Indonesian stock market.

This is likely to be a recurring theme this year with a few other coal mining companies, as several firms in the industry reports record high profits.

The company has set the Cum Date for April 1st, 2022, with the Payment Date due on April 22nd, 2022. 

Dividend per share higher than before, but...

If you read the financial statements of Indo Tambangraya Megah for 2021, the large dividend would come as no surprise. The company’s earnings in 2021 at an approximate EPS of IDR 6,003 per share were much, much higher than in 2020. 

Accordingly, the 2021 dividend for Indo Tambangraya Megah at IDR 4,258 per share is the highest DPS for the company since 2011. Although this is great news, some investors may have been expecting a higher payout ratio given the company’s history. Indo Tambangraya Megah has a track record of paying out 90-100% of its earnings as dividends to shareholders.

So, the dividend amount announced may have been a bit of a disappointment to some. After the dividend announcement today, Indo Tambangraya Megah closed at a price of IDR 27,800 per share, down 0.89% from opening price. 

Still, a dividend yield of over 10% (at current prices) is nothing to be scoffed at.
